The e-visa service would be making the travellers’ life easy and comfortable as they would not need to visit the embassy in person. All the required data would be gathered via the government’s website and the user could make the relevant payments via their credit or debit cards.
The new system would also be speeding up the visa process for the ones willing to visit Pakistan. it could not be said with clarity that whether this system would apply on the visa on arrival also or would just be for the visas that are obtained before entering the country.
Last year, visa on arrival was banned by the government in Pakistan so there is a possibility that e-visas on arrival would become operational anytime soon.
Owing to the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) many investors are looking forward to making their investments in Pakistan and with the improved law and order situation, the country would soon become a tourism destination for people throughout the world.
The reception was attended by Members of the UK Parliament Muhammad Yasin and Ilyas Amin, Journalists, Officials from Pakistan High Commission (PHC), Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry—Pakistan’s Deputy High Commissioner to United Kingdom (UK) and a large number of British-Pakistanis.
